The other races (5k, 10k and 20k) are individual starts between 9 and 11 a.m. Each runner in these races has an individual start and finish time recorded for them; therefore runners can choose to start their race any time within those two hours. 10k and 5k runners catch a bus at the located in the Naturalist Cabin area, to get to their start locations, and should plan to check in at registration 1/2 hour before beginning their races.

All runners must check in with a (human) timer before beginning their race. All runners will be equipped with chip timing devices. Start times for some races are recorded manually and not with the chip timing. Chip timing is used to record all runners' finish times. More information on chip timing below.

Pets are welcome to run the course with you (on a leash of course!). Walkers are also welcome at the Indian Run.
